At MSA, we believe we are in the forefront of digitizing records and making them available online. We have over 300,000 rolls of microfilm. We…switched to the Mekel scanners several years ago because they could handle all our requirements, especially duplex film in cine mode. We have found the throughput better and our quality control process improved with the Quantum processing software.
